Can you tell me if [COMPANY NAME] is a legitimate company?

The EPHCC is not a federal government agency, and therefore has no authority to investigate how companies conduct business. Your best sources for researching a business is the Better Business Bureau and your state and local consumer protection agencies, many of which can be found here. Additionally, the Federal Trade Commission has information for consumers on how to avoid scams and rip-offs, as well as tips on other consumer topics.

 

How is the Chamber involved in current public policy issues?

The Chamber’s Advocacy staff is dedicated to bolstering economic growth through legislative involvement. By supporting initiatives that help reduce the cost of doing business through major tax reform, the Chamber champions a competitive regional business climate to compete in the national market. If we expect to be included and represented effectively, the El Paso business community must deepen relationships in Congress and maintain a high profile with key decision makers; therefore your EPHCC Advocacy team visits DC and Austin at least once a year to voice our concerns, share our many successes and maintain the El Paso business community as a priority to our legislative leaders. As our CEO shares:“It is  is of high importance that we voice our concerns to our legislative leaders and also represent our business community,”. Your EPHCC will also keep you updated through our Newsletters on significant policy changes, public issue positions or any legislative news  you need to know about. Subscribe here. Keep in mind that our Advocacy department exists to give YOU a voice, keep us posted about YOUR concerns, call us any day at 915.566.4066 and don't forget to visit our Advocacy section on our main menu. 

How can I become a speaker at a Chamber program or event?

Speakers at Chamber programs are Chamber members. Several of the Chamber’s programs provide a forum for members to share their expertise with the business community. Potential speakers are required to meet with our Membership Deparment with a proposal. You can also contact our Membership Department to discuss upcoming opportunities.

My company is interested in sponsoring an event. What opportunities are available at the Chamber?
